How to Build Relationships You Love

When it comes to building relations we love, we tend to see them as a one-sided relationship—our own. What if we were able to strip the stigma of what it means to be in a healthy relationship—romantically or platonically—and start by creating a solid foundation of love for ourselves.

How would that look and feel? What would it mean to become your own best friend?
